Part festival and part symposium, the kayak extravaganza through Sunday will “bring together people of all ages and all different skill levels” to experience nature and “have a good time,” said Tammi Hinkle, owner of Adventures Through Kayaking.
Co-sponsored by Adventures Through Kayaking, Olympic Raft & Kayak and Sound Bikes & Kayaks — all of Port Angeles — the new festival highlights and promotes all categories of paddling, from sea and lake to river and surf, and offers classes taught by “world-renowned instructors,” many of whom live on the North Olympic Peninsula because of its diverse kayaking opportunities, Hinkle said.
Registrations for land classes can be made at the check-in tent at Hollywood Beach at Lincoln Street and Railroad Avenue.
New and experienced paddlers can test-drive a variety of kayaks at Hollywood Beach for a $10 beach pass.
Eight feature films, ranging from 12 to 40 minutes, were shown at the Outdoor Adventure Film Festival from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at Studio Bob, 118½ Front St.
Among the films were “Bhutan: The Last Shangri-La,” the “Of Souls+Water” series, “Wildwater” and “Mountain Mind Collective,” which was filmed on the North Olympic Peninsula.
